About us

Our history is our future

We have come a long way from the original small company of raw materials and paints founded in Naples (Italy) by Gennaro Calabria long ago in 1936. Today Prochin Italia is considered one of the leading companies in the field of silicates and chemical products, favouring reliability, professionalism and competence.
